Description

The Matters Matter photographic series presents wastes, neglected traces of the common history that lives in us, crushed, swept, thrown, recovered after our passage. Yet today theses wastes bear witness to a planetary lifestyle as complex as it is casual, as paradoxical as it is unequal. Waste is now the most important trace of our daily existence. Each of us throws garbage at home in the street, in the wild, more than once a day. This gesture is accomplished in half consciousness and forgotten a second later. In this way we are disconnected from the organic nature of the elements that constitute the very essence of all forms of life. But far from the eyes the waste continues to transform and is not inert. They become part of a moving universe and join the billions of particles that make up energy and matter. Plastics, Carcasses, Plants. Wastes are collected within the urban space." Michel Monteaux

“Recognized for his work as a photographer - portraits, reports, social stories - Michel Monteaux questions, through photography and drawing, the mysterious links between beings in their environment and the symbolic orders that bring them together.

Intuitively and reasonedly, to reveal the flavor of the unusual universe of the Unique World, the artist arouses considerable hope: what if we had until now understood almost nothing of our inscription in the world? »

Fabien Ribery (Extract).

"I found it interesting to see how your series transforms everyday waste into something fragile and precious, revealing a somewhat mystical presence in the mundane."

Fabian Knierim, curator at the Westlicht Photography Center, Vienna, Austria.
